- HIPAA 4010 to 5010 and ICD-9 to ICD-10: more than just a conversion
Considering the mandated compliancy time frames for the switch from 4010 to 5010 and ICD-9 to ICD-10, it is reasonable to assume that many players in the healthcare industry will tend to associate both switches: migrating from ICD-9 based HIPAA 4010 to ICD-10 based HIPAA 5010.

- ICD-9 to ICD-10: what is that about, and how can data integration tools help
OK, so, what's the problem?

- HIPAA 4010 to 5010: how the XQuery Update Facility helps
XML Converters support bi-directional conversions between HIPAA (4010 or 5010) and XML; as you might expect, the result of a HIPAA 4010 conversion into XML is somewhat different from the XML Schema used by XML Converters to model HIPAA 5010. That implies that leveraging XML Converters to transform a HIPAA 4010 message into HIPAA 5010 is surely possible, but a few changes need to occur in the XML model to accommodate the version update.
